Application Requirements and Procedures

Applicants for the fellowship should have satisfactorily completed 36 months of residency training in a United States program approved by the Residency Review Committee in Ophthalmology and accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.  Texas Medical licensure and United States citizenship are required.

We participate in the San Francisco Match for Diseases and Surgery of the Retina and Vitreous fellowships. Please refer to the SFMatch website for details and deadlines.  Once registered, you can view our program listing on the SFMatch directory website for all required documents.

For any questions, please contact Robin Caldwell at robinc@bcm.edu.

Also, note that there is a restrictive covenant in place.  It is our expectation that the specialists we train will practice outside the wide Houston Metropolitan area unless they join the faculty at Baylor College of Medicine.
